Well I did say Low Cost...

it's for workstation users on a budget, but the term HEDT is a specific market segmentation of products. Technically the old "budget HEDT" line was the 8 and 12 core threadripper CPUs, but those sold poorly and had little market significance.

 

basically the 5950X performance speaks for itself, memory channels or no. It's powerful, capable, and is definitely useful for the semi-professional on a budget.

I noticed that AMD has the Ryzen 9 which uses the AM4 socket. I'm wondering if using two memory channels instead of four will limit R9 performance. Does it? Is the R9 supposed to be the Low Cost HEDT CPU? Well it does makes building a Workstation a great cheaper for those who need or could use one instead of paying out of the rear for such things.

 

Threadrippers on the other hand are expensive, but not as much as Intel's HEDT line.

No.

If it doesn't have the extra memory channels and also importantly more PCIe lanes it's not HEDT.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Well I was looking at the 3900 Series which you could get if you wanted one. But I had enough overheating with the Pentium D I used to have thank you very much. I would perfer to stay at 65W TDP.
